Sale Sharks name side to face Exeter Chiefs on February 8

First published in Sport

Sale Sharks have named their side for tomorrow evenings Aviva Premiership Round 14 game against Exeter Chiefs at the Salford City Stadium.

Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, earlier in the week, “As a management team we targeted the Scarlets and Wasps LV games as potential wins.

"We've achieved that, now we have got to do the same for the next two matches starting against Exeter Chiefs.

"We are rock bottom of the Premiership and we have got to move up the table and if we can get through the semi to a final and maybe finish 10th in the Premiership then suddenly the season won't look quite so bad.

"Exeter will be a big challenge for us. They are a very good side and well coached.”

The biggest crowd of the season at the Salford City Stadium is guaranteed and supporters are reminded that the game kicks off at 7-45pm, due to television scheduling.

Mark Cueto returns to the starting line up looking to become the Premiership’s leading try scorer of all time. He is currently on 75 along with Steve Hanley.

Among the replacements are Nick Macleod who has been out since the defeat at Wasps in December and Will Addison who was injured in the home defeat to Northampton in November.

Team: 15 Rob Miller, 14 Charlie Amesbury, 13 Jonny Leota, 12 Sammy Tuitupou, 11 Mark Cueto, 10 Danny Cipriani, 9 Dwayne Peel, 1 Ross Harrison, 2 Tommy Taylor, 3 Henry Thomas, 4 Tom Holmes, 5 Kearnan Myall, 6 Dan Braid, 7 David Seymour Captain, 8 James Gaskell

Replacements: 16 Marc Jones, 17 Alasdair Dickinson, 18 Tony Buckley, 19 Fraser McKenzie, 20 Richie Vernon, 21 Will Cliff, 22 Nick Macleod, 23 Will Addison
